1 cup water
1 cup sugar
3 fresh rosemary sprigs, plus extra sprigs (small) to garnish

Make a rosemary syrup by bringing water and sugar to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add the rosemary sprigs and stir into the sugar and water. Remove the saucepan from the heat and cover with a lid. Set aside to steep for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the rosemary sprigs from the syrup.
To serve, fill eight glasses nearly half full with sparkling wine. Pour ¼ cup grapefruit juice into each glass and add 2 tsp of the rosemary syrup. Add a splash more sparkling wine to the glass.
Garnish with small rosemary sprigs and wedges of grapefruit.
